Dow Jones and the Industrials were a punk/new wave band from West Lafayette, Indiana from the late 1970s until around 1981. During this time, they released a split LP with Gizmos, Hoosier Hysteria, and a self-titled 7" EP known for its "Can't Stand the Midwest" anthem. The song "Ladies With Appliances" was also featured on the famed Red Snerts compilation of Indiana bands. Originally, the band consisted of Greg Horn (guitar, vocals), Chris Clark (bass, vocals), drummer Tim North, and Brad Garton (otherwise known as "Mr. Science") on keyboards...

Now we are culling together the recorded history for a series of reissues on the Family Vineyard label. The 1981 7" EP was released in March 2011. It will be followed by a 2xLP / CD of the complete recordings in 2013.
